The one-day Tropicália Festival could be one of the last big outdoor concert events of the year, and its existence reinforces the idea that the Long Beach area has become a nexus point for ambitious music gatherings. As with the LBC’s recent Music Tastes Good and the inaugural Growlers Six festival in neighboring San Pedro, Tropicália features a surprisingly varied combination of musicians. It’s ostensibly a Latino music festival, but the lineup ranges from the relatively traditional norteño combo Los Tigres del Norte and mainstream pop-rockers Café Tacvba to such wildly disparate performers as soul groovers Chicano Batman, Brazilian psychedelic magicians Os Mutantes, Puerto Rican reggaaeton diva Ivy Queen, juiced-up cumbia twisters Very Be Careful, rockabilly fireball Wanda Jackson, R&B soother Jhené Aiko, San Pedro pop-soul charmer Brenton Wood and madly intoxicating East L.A. garage-surf trio Thee Commons.

With Los Tigres del Norte, Chicano Batman, Kali Uchlis, Café Tacvba, Jhené Aiko, Alina Baraz, Goldlink, Ivy Queen, King Krule, Cuco, La Sonora Dinamita, Ginuwine, The Delfonics, Wanda Jackson, Os Mutantes, Jeanette, Brenton Wood, Celso Piña, Smino, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Thee Commons, Madlib, Slow Hollows, Pity Party, Buyepongo, SadGirl, Red Pears, La Banda Skalavera, Funky Sole DJs and others.
